Summer is the perfect time for cookouts with friends and family. We love a good BBQ at That’s Good HR.  Burgers, hot dogs or chicken on the grill just smells like summer! Here are two simple sides that will keep you smiling all summer.

Kirstia’s Famous Corn Dip

This “dip” is best served with Fritos Scoops, but tortillas chips work too. Carrots are a great option for the health-conscious, but despite their crunch they don’t measure up to the chip options.


4 cans Fiesta Corn (drained) – must be Fiesta Corn, no substitutions

1 cup sour cream

1 cup mayo

2 cups Colby Jack cheese, shredded

2 tablespoons canned jalapenos (or more if you desire more heat)

Mix all the Fiesta Corn, sour cream and mayo together until well blended.  Add jalapenos with a little juice and continue to mix.  Next, add the cheese and mix more.  Once all ingredients are together, if the dip looks too wet, add a bit more cheese.  If it appears too dry, add equal parts mayo and sour cream. Trust us – it is delicious.

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

What says summer more than lemonade? This recipe can be doubled, tripled or even quadrupled to your desired serving size.


1 cup lemon juice (squeezing 4-6 makes about 1 cup)

1 cup sugar

6 cups water

To make 1 cup of lemon juice, you will need 4-6 lemons.  If you want to make more lemonade, just double the recipe – 8-12 lemons, 2 cups sugar and 12 cups water.  We promise it will taste like you’re strolling the midway at the State Fair.
